Australian charts: 1971
The group recorded tracks for their album ‘Choice Cuts’ at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London. They brought in outside musicians to augment some tracks, and made use of Paul McCartney’s white grand piano on a few cuts, including “Because I Love You”.
The entire LP was recorded, mixed and mastered within a month and the band was thrilled with the results. The choice of the first single was “Because I Love You”, a song of love, separation and independence. It became a popular and enduring recording.
Because I Love You peaked at no 12 on the Go-Set National Top 40 in March 1971.
